Until We Meet Again.

Hello My Dear Friends.

Well my friends my time has come.  At 1PM Monday I made my journey over the Rainbow Bridge.  My MOM was there to help be make this last journey.  Miss Vickie was there too and my MOM’s dear friend Cindy.  I was surrounded by lots and lots of love.

There are now words to express how much each of you have meant to me.  You shared your lives with me and I was a much better dog because of it.  What a journey we have had, am I right?

My parting words to you is this: Live each day to the fullest, for it is a gift.  Love often, growl less.  Take time to smell the roses.  Let those who surround you know they are loved.  Life is beautiful my friends, so see it, share it, create it.  Oh and this one last thing, STICKS!!!!  If you see a stick in need do me a favor, help it out.

To my buddy Bert: Bert I am counting on you to help take care of my MOM.  She is going to need a fluffy Golden boy like you to hold on to for a little bit.

To my MOM: MOM I have loved you from the moment you walked past me trying not to notice me.  It was fate, God’s will that we were meant to be together.  For 15 years you have been my everything.  No doggie could have asked for a more loved, blessed and beautiful life.  I will miss you dearly, butt know I will be watching over you for as long as you walk this earth until that day we are reunited.  I love you MOM with everything I am.

Until we meet again my friends.
Such a heart felt thank you to each of you.  I will miss Goose with every fiber of my being.  At this moment I am so lost without him.  I am not sure what I will do without him.  Tears just keep falling.  Yes they are tears, lots of tears. But they are not just tears of sadness but tears of overwhelming joy for all the beautiful years we had together.  Thank you gain for all your love and support.


  1. Dear Michelle,

    I know there are no words at this time that can help heal your broken heart. If you are lucky, time will allow a scar to form so it isn't so broken. Thank you for sharing your Goose with us. He was clearly a wonderful boy. He reminded us all to count our blessings and to see the beauty in life. Take care of yourself and know we are all thinking of you.

  2. Such a lovely post, Michelle. Please know that so many of us are thinking of you and remembering Goose with love. His courage and wisdom will remain with us and we are the better for having known him through this blog. Bless you as you grieve this wonderful boy.

    (I can't see so forgive typos) Hugs. Just hugs. Blessings and hugs. and wags for the rainbow boy. I'll ask my Jade to join his welcoming party. ...and again, hugs. YAM xxx

  4. It is so hard to write through the tears - Goose was and always will be such a special boy to all of us - he made us smile and bought us all joy and we are all going to miss him so much. We are sending the biggest hugs ever to you Michelle.

  5. Dear Michelle,
    Thank you for loving Goose so much that at this very sad time you came to the computer to let us know. Our precious, handsome Goose had made his journey to the Rainbow Bridge.
    Goose if you can hear me, I surely know what you mean about loving Michelle from the moment she passed by you. As soon as we saw your soulful eyes, gorgeous furs, and read your inspirational messages on Sunday and about your hilarious antics and obsession with sticks.... we knew we loved you too.
    Run free over the bridge. I'm pretty sure there are sticks there waiting to be loved by you.
    Michelle your love and devotion to Goose was obvious in every picture and every single word you wrote. You gave him an incredible journey on this earth. Your love
    for him guided you when it was time for him to take his next journey.
    Take care of yourself. In time I hope you can think of him without so much hurt and remember his funny, crazy side and you a can smile.
    You both inspired me to be a better person....
    With love and hugs
    Madi and Cecilia

  6. Thanks for sharing Goose with us, prayers for comfort and peace for you & yours, gentle woooos,

    NukNuk & Family

  7. When we think of Goose there are so many things that come to mind. We have told you before that had it not been for Goose and the blog that we would never have found a furever home with our pawrents. It is true, not just words. We remember the very furst time we met Goose and what he said to us. He said, "Get out of my face boys." Yes, it's true. We were jumping all over his face like crazy. We didn't know any better. BUTT the thing we wanted to tell you today was that we are thinking about a book mom once read called "A Dog's Purpose". It was about how dogs are born over and over until they find their purpose in life. We know that the greatest thing would be to find our purpose and there is no doubt that Goose found his. OK, maybe it was a bit of a team effort. For any dog to touch even half the number of people that Goose touched would be an honor. So we are thankful for Goose and will honor his life by being the best dogs we can and taking his advice.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  8. Even though we all knew this day was coming, it really doesn't make it any easier. We are so sorry for your loss of your soulmate.

You and Goose truly lived LOVE to the fullest. Soft woos and gentle hugs from all of us.

    Love and Peace.

  82. Michelle - Sending hugs and prayers to you. Goose will live on in your heart and your memories. It may take awhile, butt eventually you will smile and laugh and yes, cry, when you start telling stories and going down memory lane. He was a special dog, you made sure we all knew that and felt it too. We will go out and save some sticks in memory of Goose. Love to you. Steph

  85. oh no.....we just heard about Goose. He was a wonderful and well loved boy....we are so very sorry for your loss....

  86. The whole world loved you Goose and you will live in hearts and minds forever. Love and hugs to the Mom from all of us.

  87. Dear Michelle, my heart is so full for you - but also is breaking. It's full of joy because of the love-filled life you gave to Goose - and that he gave right back. It's full of beauty, as you and Goose always reminded us to see all the beauty around us. It's full of love for all of God's creations and for special bonds. It's breaking, too, though, because I understand the void his absence is leaving in your life. There is a reason for it, and God will let you know what that is in His time. And I KNOW you and Goosie will be together again, when God calls you Home as well. In the meantime, God must have had a lot of sticks in Heaven that needed saved. He's got Goose to help with that now.
    Know that you are loved and that we all are here for you.
    Karen and Cam and Mags

  88. Good bye Goose, we will miss you. Jack & Maggie say, see you on the other side.

    It has been very hard for us to even comment. Every time we start, we begin to weep and the tears make our paws slip on the keys. We have loved Goose with every fiber of our being and wish we could have met you in person instead of just in our imagination. But our imagination has given us a gift of sharing a little of ourselves with yous. Mes will be honored to meets you over the bridge and can finally feel the softness of your furs against mine and the beat of your heart against mine.
    Dearest Michelle, wes sends yous our love, strength and courage.
    Kisses Nellie (and Mom)

  105. Hi Y'all!

    Just stoppin' back, lettin' you know that Goose is in our thoughts, but you, "Mom" are in my Humans' prayers. Goose is safe with friends in the green fields on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge, but you "Mom" are alone on that Rocky Road called Life. We know your friends, both pawed and footed, are keeping you close and giving you comfort, but right now we know how alone and empty it is without Goose by your side.

    As Goose would say "Blessings".
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  106. Goose has been such an inspiration, he will be so missed. Run free over the bridge Goose. Peace and healing to your loved ones. Prayers as they adjust to this life without you.

  107. Michelle, my heart is breaking, so I can only imagine your grief :( Goose always loved the outdoors, so this poem reminds me of him:

    Do not stand at my grave and weep.
    I am not there, I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn's rain.
    When you awaken in the morning's hush,
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there, I did not die...

    Godspeed, Goose.

  108. Here we are again, thinking of you and sending love to your MOM

    I think of you and Goose, and pray for you, and cry for you, daily. I pray for strength, and for the grief process to pass as quickly as possible. It will take time, just time and lots of talking. We hope that whatever your process is, that it works for you.

  126. It is Dr.EBHOSE you can email him if you need assistance in your relationship
    I promise you your problems are solved immediately. After being in
    relationship with him for seven years, he left me, I did everything
    can I bring him back behind, but all in vain. He wanted to
    for the love I feel for him, begged, but he refused until
    explained my problem to someone online and she suggested I should
    rather mail a spellcaster that could help me a spell to bring him
    back, but I'm the guy who never believed in spells, I had no choice but to
    Try it, sent the caster, I said no problem

    within three days, the spell was cast and, surprisingly, on the second day,
    it was around 4:00 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, he answered the
    call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened,
    he wanted to get back to me, which I love so much. I was so happy and
    surprised. Since then, I have made a promise that everyone I know will
    never have a relationship problem, which I will refer to the spell
    launcher to help. Anyone may need the help of the caster, his
    He also made many spell-like,

    (1) want your ex back.
    (2) You always have nightmares.
    (3) To be promoted in his office
    (4) Would you like a child.
    (5) Want to be rich.
    (6) want to keep your husband / wife to be only yours forever.
    (7) the need for financial assistance.
